World Mental Health Day 2012

Today, writers, bloggers and speakers around the world are talking about mental health. The World Mental Health Organization chose to focus this year on depression. Twitter and Facebook will be full of awareness-raising and stigma-busting. I love the power of the internet to do that. Let’s Change the cultural conversation together. If you are struggling today…

Two years ago today, I started this blog with this post.  Last year, on my 40th birthday, which was also my first “blogaversary”, I posted this: When I was younger, I really wanted people to think I was beautiful, then I wanted them to think of me as smart, then I wanted to be funny,…

Imperfect at BlogHer

I’m on the bus to NYC. I’m going to BlogHer. The mother of all blogging conferences. It’s my first time going to something like this. And I’m nervous. And despite my best efforts, so much of what was supposed to happen before I go, didn’t. I wanted to get a haircut before I go. I…

Imagine a safe haven of Self-Kindness and support for moms: A group in which all of our motherhood struggles are met with understanding, sisterhood, and hugs. Where we can safely spill our guts, ask questions, ask for ideas and commiseration, while knowing that we will not be judged, and not be given unsolicited advice. This group is a refueling…

Pride in the Invisible + Comfort + Sisterhood

My sweet friend Charity (who wrote this guest post here) is hosting a Mother’s Pride Carnival (what an awesome idea!) at her blog Giggles and Grimaces.  Charity rocks, y’all, and you can follow her on twitter at @signingcharity  I am proud of many things but  not always as proud as I should be. And while…

Yuz takes off the mask

I am beyond thrilled to have my dear friend Yuz here today, all the way from Melbourne Australia. We met online through #ppdchat and fell in love with each other. We have so much in common, PPD and being Jewish are just the tip of the iceberg.  This post is about telling her story on her…

December Love Letter for mom: Speakeasy call tonight, Sunday Comfort Camp and more

I just sent out the december PPD to Joy Love letter for Mom. With a reminder for tonight’s PPD SpeakEasy call. Did you get it?  I didn’t. It went into my spam folder. Which is rather ironic considering that beginning of that letter is a rant about tech problems… And we have new call numbers for…
